I knew there was something in front of me. It was not something I could touch. Tears flowed down my cheeks. Beautiful… as the surrounding mountains, she whispered in my ear.

I knew this lady, yet nothing human stood before me. This spirit or deep feeling was very friendly. Perhaps we have crossed paths before. Maybe she raised me as a child. She could be my mother alive in the mountains of Peru. Was it time for a visit from her? I don’t know, but she caressed my cheek and wiped my tears away.

Don’t be afraid child. Look at the beauty that surrounds you. Open your eyes.

Loved ones die… yet where do they go?

She stands over her beloved city and tends to her flowers. She speaks if you allow yourself to listen.

She whispers…I love you!
